CuH-catalyzed enantioselective conjugate reduction of 3,3-diaryl-substituted acrylonitriles is described. A range of 3-aryl-3-pyridylacrylonitriles were reduced with high levels of enantioselectivity under optimal conditions employing a copper/Josiphos complex in the presence of polymethylhydrosiloxane (PMHS).
